The turntable (originally, the gramophone) has been around since 1877. With such an extensive history as a source of entertainment, musical instrument, and design accessory, it is without a doubt the machine has had some very high profile fans over the years.
Here, we have come across a handful of photos, some dating back to 1925, of some of the finest and most legendary starlettes the world has seen, posing with their beloved record players and turntables. From Rita Hayworth to Billie Holiday to Marlene Dietrich and beyond, we see that the turntable has truly always been en vogue.
Enjoy the trip down memory lane. If you have any photos to add to the collection, post them in the comments!
